Question Pregnancy on Dilantin

I just found out I'm pregnant and all 3 of my doctors want me to stay on dilantin. 150mg/day. I've begged to go off or taper down and they say no. The last time I started to wean off, I had another seizure - that's why. They're probably right but it still doesn't make me feel any better about taking drugs while pregnant. Has anyone experienced this? Help! thanks. Elane.
